Are you residing close to Client location, I mean City/Town? If yes, how do you commute and the distance? Thanks!
commented 5 days ago by ram (850 points)
Yes, I am residing very close to my work location ( nearly 11 miles). both residential and work location are within same MSA. ( same county and same city)

I will use my own car to commute to office and back to home.

car is registered in same city , same MSA.

I am still confused why they asked this question.

this is my extension with same client and same location.

Thanks

They just want to make sure that you are actually working there, looks like a new Trend. However, please gather the following:

1. Driver License

2. Car Registration

3. Gas Bills

4. Toll Bills (if any)

5. Apartment/House Lease

6. Gas, Electric, Internet Bills

7. Any mail communication, especially from Government Agencies like IRS

8. Print a Google Map showing the Distance to Worksite

Also, please check your LCA, if it lists your Home as a work location too...

Change the Address on the Driver License.

Did you check the LCA?

I am just providing this information based on your Question, please double check the RFE.  The above information may be sufficient to warrant a favorable decision. Good Luck!
commented 5 days ago by ram (850 points)
yes , I checked LCA , place of employment in LCA has my end client address.

I have to write any cover letter to support all proofs  in detailed what is what ?
commented 5 days ago by dan (24,624 points)
Please submit these documents to your Attorney or Employer. They should explain and submit with the RFE

Thanks ,

I have filed my petition in premium to nebraska center and this is my 1st RFE ,

any chances of issuing 2nd RFE like specialty occupation or employee - employer relationship ?  

I heard for premium processing , uscis will issue all RFE's  at once , Is this true ?
commented 4 days ago by dan (24,624 points)
There is no hard boiled rule and it has nothing to with premium processing. USCIS may issue a second RFE or NOID (Notice of Intent to Deny)
commented 4 days ago by ram (850 points)

Hi Dan , 

I updated new addresses on my license , but issue date on license is showing up as todays's date(address updated date)  not the previous issue date on my old license, does it make uscis to doubt that after issuing RFE they applied for addresses change in license  ???
 

any inputs on this?
